    Will the search for the temple of the Black Flame prove a successful mission, or is failure imminent? Just what is the powerful energy that gives the Black Flame life? Youll need to read the final chapter to find out how many of those questions are answered, and what new mysteries may have sprung up. If you havent been reading this series all along, well that may not be a bad thing. Grab each issue, read it straight through, and see what youve been missing. If the dreaded Black Flame seems at all interesting then rest assured, theres lots more where that came from already out there. Be warned: youll not only find yourself down the rabbit hole, so to speak, but youll also see what it is that makes the Black Flame one of the most vile and hated villains of all time. After all, its saying something when a bad guy gets his own title. Doesnt it? At any rate, the twists, connections, hints and clues are intriguing enough to keep old and new readers engaged for a long time to come. Read Full Review

    The ending was a little rough, but this was a minor drawback to an otherwise fantastic series. Read Full Review

    I read this series with no knowledge of what or who the Black Flame was, but I truly enjoyed the story nonetheless. This issue was a surprise for me, and now I am intrigued as to what came before (after?) this prequel. The art of Christopher Mitten continued to be a revelation as well. Great stuff.
